Hasselblad Discontinues the Hasselblad X1D

The Hasselblad X1D-50c is discontinued as are all kits with it, except the field kit multi-lens bundle, which presumably is still in stock but soon to go.

Does this mean a Hasselblad X1D Mark II is coming, perhaps with a 100MP sensor?

A camera with a 100 megapixel sensor would need a CPU twice as fast, but really the issue is the severe problem with bootup speed (11 seconds or so)—time to be ready to shoot makes it useless in too many scenarios.

Were I building a Hasselblad X1D system, I’d want all of the 21mm, 30mm, 45mm, 65mm and 80mm lenses. But that’s a pipe dream (cost) and the X1D is just not usable for any kind of responsive shooting unless the camera is left on—the glacially slow bootup time is a severe handicap.
